The legions of fans, aficionados, devotees, and armchair scholars of a book-to-film’s original source material must, like skeptical clerics studying the Shroud of Turin, hold up every foot and frame of the filmmaker’s work to the light of the hallowed author’s words and pages. And we all know what the first four letters of the word analysis are.

Yes, I know, analogy, too.
